The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are one of the most exciting and amazing phenomenon in nature, at least for me. I really enjoy hearing things about it (like the following news) and someday I will watch it live, hopefully.
Members of the Slooh expedition team have been busy bees this week, setting off to capture a live feed of the Northern Lights on Tuesday and also the total solar eclipse tomorrow from the Faroe Islands. Of course, we’re very grateful to them for bringing us some jaw-dropping footage, and we can’t wait for the big event tomorrow. But in the meantime, if you didn’t manage to catch a glimpse of the awesome live video of the Icelandic aurora, here are some highlights that Slooh has kindly put together:
As you can see, there was an awful lot of activity going on in the sky, which was thanks to an intense geomagnetic storm.
